No. 25F Lord's Prayer 6

25 F orthodox cathedral inside.jpg

For Thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory, [of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit] both now and ever and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

The last words of the prayer that Jesus gave us, ask God to deliver us from evil as only He can. The end.

It is His Bride, the Church, who finishes Her Bridegroom's perfect prayer with three quintessential points to complement and confirm.

His Kingdom: She affirms the Father's sovereign authority.

His Power: She acknowledges His astounding ability to answer prayer requests.

His Glory: She praises God's resplendent beauty, magnificence, splendor, and radiance into eternity, without diminution, or change.

The Bride's last line of the Lord's prayer is the hug, the kiss on the hand, the difference between making a wish upon a star, and catching the lifeline for the Creator to reel us in. What more can we say to God, our Father? Could any other words be used to worship Him better?

No, we can only top this prayer by going back to the commands to aim for His Holy Mark of being with our attitude and action.
